Thank you so much for posting this article, you have no idea how much this will help someone. For someone that has been suffering from depression, if only so many people had done this for me, I think it would've turned out so much different. People tend to scare away from people suffering from depression because they dont know what to do or how to handle the situation. Most times I found that the people trying to help you are more scared than you actually are.
In today's world, like you said, majority depression sufferers are teenagers and if more people could read this article, they could end up saving so much kids. And you the person suffering from depression needs is for someone to listen without judgment. We need to create more awareness regarding depression as this is one of the deadliest killers today. I particularly like the part where you stated what could cause depression, some people cant understand how you can fall into depression after a relationship has ended or failing a test.
I can truly relate to everything you posted and for me, i took it upon myself to seek help, see a psychologist, take my anti depressants and try and speak to more people. I have also found that the more you speak openly about depression, the less power it will have over you (from my point of view at least). Thank you so much for this.
